this plan by hager does not accurately reflect the security environment. roy blunt, it has the potential to harm america's readiness. we're not likely to see the knock-down, drag-out fight. remember the sequester was supposed to be the stick that would force republicans and some democrats to negotiate a grand bargain. but as we saw, many republicans looked over the edge of the cliff and said, you know what, sequester not so bad. in fact, some conservatives support the sequester, for imposing cuts that congress wouldn't have had the stomach to put in place otherwise, and for republicans, some conservatives who are putting fiscal responsibility near the top of their priority list, this may be a question of picking your poison. now, according to south carolina governor nikki haley, president obama delivered that message pretty bluntly when he spoke to republican governors at the chamber of commerce -- she was at the chamber of commerce, but this is what he said, according to her, when they met at the white house. >> the tone completely changed when we started talking about the national guar
the environment and clean water standards is not antigrowth. in fact, it's projobs. when i recently toured the family-run trucking company in my district, they were not against truck safety standards. they do the right thing by their workers and they abide by safe driving rules. and they want regulations to ensure that others do the same. what they are against are new truck safety standards that hinder growth without actually making trucking any safer. smarter regulations should protect good businesses from bad actors. i'll give you another example. denny hudson, he runs sea coast bank, a small community bank in florida. like many small financial institutions, they weathered the financial crisis because they were not involved in the risky financial behavior. they expected mortgages to be repaid on time and they wanted the small businesses they supported to succeed. after the financial crisis of 2008, nearly took down the global economy, most people agreed that government regulators needed to better protect our financial system. but if new regulations keep community banks like sea coast fro

think that that's the environment which we've been in. why are they so low? it's not because there's so much liquidity. it's because there's a lot of fear. the fed is beginning its tapering program but yet this flood of fears has overwhelmed the fed's withdrawal of some of its monthly stimulus. so i think that if we do see yields go too much lower, it's all a question of why, and i think really the reason now is because you'd see a spike in fear, and that wouldn't be a good thing, but again it's the type of thing i think you can just sort of look through and actually think that maybe in a month from now we're going to see that this is actually -- we're on to the next story. >> rates are low because there's no demand for credit. >> i continue to think that rates are low. we've seen this rally in rates this year, 40 bits in the ten-year in two months because investors really are concerned about some sort of repricing of risk and this happened two weeks after the fed tapered. that's not a coincidence. >> there's no demand for credit on the consumer side. >> if you actually look at the cons
and inform community decisions about the environment and the economy. but maybe the most important factor is many of the hard-working people in this particular part of the state depend on the york river to support their jobs. the york river is a place where people go to work. ommercial and we see this especially in the western part of the united states that when he's areas are designated either wild and scenic or wilderness, what happens is areas around that become de facto wilderness or de facto wild and scenic which many, many times imposes on private property rights. now we've experienced that more in the west than what my colleagues have in the east and my colleague from maine expressed rightly so this has very, very broad support. i'm sure it does. they work very hard on that but the danger in the future is, if taken to the extreme, you could have, unless we had within the study, you could have some pressures on private property rights. we think that is sufficiently important to put that in the studies so that those that will be affected know about it. i hope the outcome is such that
such as entities committed to protecting and preserving our nation's environment natural resources or the communities that could be directly impacted by such activities. to be clear, i strongly support the rights of industry to have an opportunity to provide comments on proposed rules. it fosters more informed quality rulemaking and benefits both business and broader society. indeed, that's why our current administrative procedures mandate that a public comment process be conducted to allow any individual or corporation to participate and provide input and feedback in an equal, fair and open process. that's current law. the amendment that congresswoman duckworth and i are proposing today would simply ensure that all participants in the rulemaking process be provided equal consultation rights with agencies. for example, as the ranking member, mr. cummings, noted earlier, if the u.s. department of agriculture were to have a rule in an effort to protect the health of everyday americans, our amendment would ensure that not only the agribusinesses but also food safety experts, children'

environment with controlled education get there is a wonderful wolved world out there in america. it turned into a question and answer period and there were students asking questions, most of them dealing with agriculture and i was answering them through ed, the interpreter and at a certain point it became too rapid fire and he took it over and took over the conversation. i remember one big-faced kids who said who sets the markets of -- markets for agriculture products? what would be the price for beans, rice, corn, otes and wheats. i answered him that the market sets the prices. how does the market set the prices? there's a buy whore makes the offer, there's a sell whore decides whether or not to take it. if the seller says no, the buyer might decide to raise his price until they get to a place where they agree. that was an amazing concept that it looked like they'd never heard that before. no one sets the prices? how can it be that no one sets the prices? and second thing, how many times -- how often does the price change? it can change hundreds of times a day. it changes every transactio
environment with you. what have you told the court in this plea, this desperate plea, to keep your 6-year-old granddaughter? >> i've told them that he's a convicted felon, i've told them that he offered her to me for sale. during a phone conversation with him. he said when he was in tacoma holding facility, immigration holding facility prior to his deportation, he said that he would sign her over to me if i paid for immigration attorney to keep him here in the united states. i told the court that it was equivalent to human trafficking, and that with her emotional issues, that it was the wrong thing to do to send her, essentially, to another world that she doesn't know. >> what is your worst fear here? listen, we do know that people with felony convictions in many cases, obviously, are allowed to keep their children. a conviction does not mean that you are not going to be able to care for that child, particularly if it's not an offense against that child, but what is your worst fear as her grand mom knowing that in the end she could end up there with this man? >> if, you know, i believe ev
wage, unemployment benefits and the environment. so the do nothing congress held a hearing yesterday entitled enforcing the president's constitutional duty to faithfully execute the law. the intent was clear, attack the president. and it was held in the judiciary committee which has your diction over immigration. here was lots of discussion. this is where the president has power to temporarily suspend the deportation of people who came here to the u.s. as children. apparently when the president stood just over there last month and delivered his state of the union address saying he would use his pen and phone to take executive action where the congress was taking no action, well, they didn't go over well for this do nothing cock. look, i know it's easy for republicans to blame obama and why they can't do reform this year. but you have to keep it connected to reality. you put your principles for immigration reform on the table. you call them standards, and there was some things i liked and some things i didn't. but what i said was, good, thank you, it's a nice start. let's sit down and
was i could see myself in these young men. and the only difference is that i grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. so when i made a mistake, the consequences were not as severe. i had people who encourage me, not just my mom and grandparents, but wonderful teachers and community leaders. and they would push me to work hard and study hard and make the most of myself. and if i didn't listen, they said it again. and if i didn't listen, they said it a third time, and they would give me second chances and third chances. they never gave up on me. and so i didn't give up on myself. i told these young men my story then, and i repeat it now because i firmly believe that every child deserves the same chances that i have. this is an issue of national importance. it's as important as any issue that i work on. it's an issue that goes to the very heart of why i ran for president. because if america stands for anything, it stands for the idea of opportunity for everybody. the notion that no matter who you are or where you came from or the circumstances in which you are born,

. are you arguing at this point when you look at the environment, technology, what we're up against, there isn't really a logical place for federalism here because of what you just mentioned? >> no, there's certainly a logical place and the states can easily go beyond what the federal government is requiring, and they are. you've had the northeastern states that entered into a compact on greenhouse gases and do some carbon trading, so there's a lot the states can and will do, but bottom line, these are issues that affect all americans, actually, they affect the world, and we need to be taking action on them. the world's not going to end tomorrow. nobody says that, but i think anyone who has been outside in the last year understands that things are changing. i mean, the world has changed since it was formed, but what we're putting into the atmosphere and the way we're changing land use is having an impact, making these things happen faster and be more severe, and we've got to slow them down to start to anticipate what we're going to have to deal with. >> and what do you say to republ

an environment of transparency, contributing to rising confidence in the electoral process. the successful voter registration drive begun during the summer of 2013 in which new voters registered by the millions, largely without incident, also demonstrates greater iec capacity. although there is, although there is thus room for optimism in the iec's performance, overt political pressure could of course still derail this progress. fortunately political entities have so far largely refrained from interfering in the electoral preparations and indeed afghan officials have even been disciplined for engaging in political activity. the independent electoral complaints commission is a relatively new institution. permanently established through the passage of a new electoral law. the ecc successfully adjudicated complaints stemming from candidate registrations in october but has since made slower progress. the slow pace of appointing provincial officers delayed the establishment of provincial electoral complaint commission offices and memorandum of understanding between the i.e. c and ecc to colocate in p
, and i -- i think it's impossible in this environment to get anything done comprehensively. comprehensive immigration reform. comprehensive tax reform. the reason we had comprehensive health care reform, in spite of what you think about it, is because you had one party controlling the house, the senate and the white house. and so to do things comprehensively, i think it's tough on either side to get something done. i think you have to, you know, get more -- you're going to have more three yard gains in an environment that we operate in washington. you're going to have more three yard gains, than you're going to have 30-yard gains. it's just the reality of the system. so there's much in the bill that i think you could point to that was positive. but there's obviously a lot of things that even republicans would have concern about. to say that we'll create $700 billion in new revenue, alex, that's an assumption over a ten-year period of time, assuming that chairman camp would be the chairman of ways and means over the next ten years. i would buy into that. but even with that, that probably p
